Prisoner Profile

Shortly before Christmas in December 2018, three Iranian intelligence agents raided the home of Mahrokh Roksare Kanbari, 65, in the city of Karaj. The agents confiscated cell phones, Bibles and Christian materials. Mahrokh was then taken to intelligence offices, where she endured ten days of intense interrogation from morning to evening.

Mahrokh was conditionally released after submitting a bail of approximately $2,500. In January 2019, she was brought before the prosecutor to answer charges of “acting against national security.”  She was then forced to go to a religious leader to be “instructed” and directed to return to Islam.

At her trial in July 2019, friends said the judge was rude and tried to humiliate Mahrokh. He then sentenced her to one year in prison for “propaganda against the system.”

Mahrokh was summoned to serve her one-year prison term in October 2019.
